Best Chance Charter Fishing
When it comes to salmon and trout on Lake Michigan, there's no one better than the Engel clan. We go way back and I can assure you a morning out on the water with Best Chance is one to remember. If a leisure cruise with BYOB is your thing, Zack can take you for an afternoon tour aboard Best Chance JR.
Sailing Lessons at SYC
Nothing is better for kids ages 8-16 to get out and learn how to sail. The SYC offers weekly lessons and is right down the road! Growing up here this was a major part of life! Morning lessons for Beginners and Afternoons for the more advanced interested in racing . Races Wednesday and Saturday!
Boat and Kayak Rentals
The best way to see town is from the water. Rent a retro boat, paddle out in a kayak, or charter a pontoon for the day! There's many great options all within walking distance! Pontoons are available across the river, kayaks can be rented at Wades Bayou in Douglas, and paddleboards at Just Add Water.
Visit a Local Vineyard
Take a 10 minute drive out into the countryside and tour one of the several local vineyards. The Fenn Valley estate is a 240 acre farm located five miles from Lake Michigan just south of Holland, Michigan. The site was chosen after reviewing weather, climate, and soil survey maps.
Visit a Roasting Facility
Visit our friends at Uncommon Coffee roasters and become a roaster for the day! In this class you can learn about the process of roasting coffee from start to finish, all the variables and science that go into roasting, and participate in a roast yourself. By the end of the day you can take home 10lbs of your custom blend to share with friends and family.
Head to the famous Coral Gables to see a comedy show. Pull up a chair and grab a drink and prepare to laugh the night away as headlining comics from around the country make a stop in Saugatuck to perform at Mike Johnson's comedy night! Check the schedule at Coral Gables for event information!
